The largest art museum in Denmark with the nation’s largest art collection, approximately 260,000 works of art. Originally founded as the royal collection, the works
were given to the people in the mid-1800s.
The National Gallery was chosen due to its vast, marble-covered spaces that are
timeless, modern and reflect the design ethos behind Rezas’ R collection.
KOGTVED MARITIME SCHOOL
A stunningly beautiful red brick building on the edge of Svendborg Sound originally
built for a merchant, it was transformed into a maritime school in 1943. The story
goes that the merchant’s wife thought it was too small. As of now, the building is
unoccupied, but the amazing interior with dark, warm wood and expansive rooms
remains. The location was chosen due to its storied past and inviting spaces that
came to life with the addition of Rezas’ rugs.
